Question about 2002 Ford SVT Focus
Regardless whether or not my 2002 SVT focus is idling or accelerating, every 7 seconds on the dot a clicking noise happens that sounds just like the air compressor clicking on and off very quickly. Right as this happens my tach jumps anywhere from 100-200rpms, and if I'm driving, the car accelerates strangely for a split second and returns back to normal. Then seven seconds later, it happens again. Help!
That is indeed your A/C compressor kicking on and off. Your a/c is driven off of the engines crankshaft and uses power from your engine to run the system.
It's possible that you have a slightly loose belt that causes the engine to hesitate a bit when the compressor turns on and off.
